Happy

from Drowning by Before Dawn

lyrics

Saying things I shouldn’t say
Doing things I shouldn’t do
Going where I shouldn’t go
Knowing what I shouldn’t know
And it’s all ok, in some strange way
And we call this happy
And we know that we’re happy
And the river flows………………
Changing it direction with respect to the earth
Coming in through air we breathe
Going out with friends we leave
A heart, what’s heart but mortal flesh
Machinery like gears that mesh
And I wish that you’d stay
In some strange way
And we call this happy
Yeah, we know that we’re happy
And the river flows
Changing its direction with respect to the earth
They say that life is making sense of it all
A great big picture in a tiny frame
This familiar dissection, this illusion of perfection
As we wait, and we wait
